Either way, though, I don't think we'll be seeing much of Elcres in the anime this season, if at all, considering we only have a few more episodes to go and I'm sure most of that will be anime-original content. I don't think we'll even touch volume 4.

I believe so as well. I haven't seen anything to persuade me otherwise either.

Well...there's a really, really famous book in Japanese literature written around the turn of the 20th century called wagahai wa neko de aru, in English I am a Cat. It's a funny social commentary on Meiji Japan from the point of view of a lazy cat. The pronoun "wagahai" is a satire on the part of the author as it is a lordly, prideful "I" pronoun used by nobles of antiquity...not usually what a cat would call himself with.

I didn't know Chaser John Doe used this term [and thereby referencing Japan's most famous cat] until I saw the anime. I totally did a double take when I heard it the first time. Just goes to show you really can't capture everything in translation (there's no way the manga's translators could possibly work that in -- even professional translators who worked on the classic novel couldn't carry through the nuance).
OOOHHHH Now that makes sense. Thanks for the reference!

And while Chaser is a Tsundere (and is slightly regulated to the bottom because of that) He's also taller, more mysterious, and all around cooler person the Yumeji is. Thus he tops. Or tops from the bottom.

Man. I'd so feed that cat.

It's surprising to see John Doe so quickly turn to the side of the protagonists, but meh. He's still cool.

John... you...I...I can't stop laughing at you. I'm sorry, but I really can't. Really? A cat body, on its hind legs, and with a cape?!

and 'Nyaa'? I have to wonder at you...

though I will agree that he turned over to the protagonists side too quickly, he is their important information well, so they can't let him wander off too far.

At the same time, Yumeji and Merry are unique beings that pique his curiosity and are interested in finding the truth about Merry and her involvement with dreams.

Should John Doe take the lighthouse guy's side again, he would be nothing more than a random grunt nightmare taking over a body to help others take over bodies.

Yumeji's side just overlaps with John's interests more.

The latest chapter was hilarious, so many hilarious moment from Yui's 'Magical, chemical, cooking!" to John going Nya and played with fiddlestick by Merry. Unfortunately, with the way things are going in the anime we may not be able to see John Doe's 'Nyaa'...if it's not going on an anime original ending anyway. Well, this is mostly a fun relaxing chapter after the huge battle last time, although the question at the end is a pretty good cliffhanger. It is a bit suspicious, and there's a lot of hints to that direction...can't wait for the next chapter.

Huh? How do you know he can use his power in the real world? (Unless you're talking about his seeing nightmares based on colors with his hand ability)

John Doe... You have the most badass nyaa I have ever seen.

Aside from that, has anyone every thought that Isana may be more involved in the whole dream world thing?
If I recalled correctly, Isana mentioned that Merry looked familiar in the earlier chapters.
